The University of Aberdeen has taught and researched Theology since its inauguration at Kings College in 1495. This rich heritage of research and teaching and programme is delivered entirely. Studying Ministry Studies online allows you to study at a pace that suits you and for qualifications which suit your needs. You can study for a PG Cert, PG DIploma, or and MTh which if you study for the Master's degree can be taken over a four year period.

You are taught with 4 one week modules held in September and January each year at Zomba Theological College in Malawi.

Students in Practical Theology explore the interaction between Christian faith and the wider spirituality of contemporary culture, with particular concern for the challenges and opportunities this offers in the context of the life and ministry of the church, both in Scotland and internationally. The department’s strong links to both church and clinical settings, along with the University’s extensive library holdings, make Aberdeen a dynamic and rich context in which to study theology’s capacity to contribute to the transformation of individual lives and Contemporary society.

The programme also runs from Aberdeen campus in January and September which is part time and studied over 24 Months
